Plants and animals effect the ecosystems they live in because they depend on each other for survival. Plants produce oxygen which animals need to breath. Animals also need plants for food. Animals release carbon dioxide from breathing which is what the plants need to make the oxygen. Animals help fertilize the ground for the plants with their feces.
